Held on the 27th of May, members of the Smart Packaging Hub will come together with guest speakers including Corné Huijben, Manager Knowledge Development and Projects NVC Netherlands Packaging Center, to discuss and solve design challenges with canned food packaging lines.
With canned food one of the fastest growing macro-sectors, producers are constantly looking for innovative applications and packaging solutions to save time and increase packaging quality.
The event, titled Creating the canned food packaging line of the future for sustainable packaging to the market, will discuss topics such as predictive maintenance and securing product quality and sustainability with points supported by business cases.
George Ostroom, CEO Cooros will give a testimonial on secondary packaging sustainability and recyclability.
